Water takes 30 sec to cover 10m from heater to tap

body { background: #FFFFFF; margin: 0px; padding: 4px; font-family: arial, verdana, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt; } p { margin:0px; padding:0px; } .spwrap { background: transparent url(/wysiwyg_rte/misspell.gif) repeat-x scroll center bottom; } You are talking about length of time to get hot water from water heater.What diameter pipe are you talking about? What type of faucet do you have?
1/2" pipe has inside diameter of .54" and holds 1.2 gallons per 100 feet
10 meters is 32 feet and holds .4 gallons
Average faucet puts out 2 gallons per minute, so 30 seconds you should get 1 gallon of water.
Put a bucket under faucet and check amount of water flow.

Assuming you draw just hot water from the faucet, then 30 seconds is slow for receiving hot water.
If you have single-handle faucet and raise handle straight up in middle, then you are drawing half hot and half cold, so it would take 30 seconds for hot to arrive.

If hot water is slow, the problem might be crossover.
or low water pressure due to clog in water line
Other problems could include clogged water filter, clogged water softener, defective pressure valve, and low water pressure.

I have the 2700es and the water upstairs gos hot then cold ,hot then cold and so on , what sould i be looking at?

The water temperature may be set too high, or try turning the hot water off and opening a hot water tap. If the water is still flowing out the hot water tap, there is a problem with a faucet (likely a shower valve). It could also be water pressure below 30 psi.

I have a johnson & starley 25-30 modairflow

I have resently had the same problem.
called british gas to inspect the system and they found that the flue had corroded at the vent and become detached allowing corbon monoxide fumes to enter the roof space and filter down the heater causing it to cut out.
advise you to stop using heater imidiately and call for assistance befor you are all gassed.
